Old Forester 86 Proof is made in the same classic style originated by George Garvin Brown in 1870. Twice-distilled, this remarkable spirit is crafted using a precise grain recipe of corn, rye and malted barley. Old Forester is richer in rye than most bourbons, resulting in a uniquely full, rich, genuine character. This is what bourbon is supposed to be. Year after year.
A truly rare and distinctive occasion took place in Louisville, Kentucky in 1870. When George Garvin Brown sealed Bourbon in a bottle for the very first time, he did so knowing it would guarantee quality and consistency for Bourbon lovers everywhere. And five generations and nearly 150 years later, our family still watches over the production of every drop of Old Forester with that same care.
